Leading Pediatric Critical Care Expert
Dr. Bradley Peterson
Additionally, I have been instrumental in building a critical care transport program that now transports over a thousand critically ill and injured children each year. I am currently the medical director of this transport team.
I have extensive experience in all causes of respiratory failure, shock and multiple organ failure, hepatic failure, cardiac arrest and trauma, including non-accidental trauma. And, all cases of coma including meningitis, encephalitis, and intracranial hemorrhage are also areas of expertise. Finally, additional care has included drowning, snakebite, and poisoning.
I have published extensively on care for severe head injuries using Hypertonic Saline, and am largely credited with popularizing the technique. I have also popularized high frequency low stretch mechanical ventilation use in pediatrics.
I have been an expert witness many times, including testifying, over the last 40 years. With this background, I believe I can offer unmatched expertise related to pediatric cases and am available for review and consultation on complex medical and medical legal cases.
